CR Model Summary
Redesigned for 2015, Ford's big- selling pickup truck has moved to an all-aluminum body, which saves about 700 pounds for improved fuel economy and greater towing capacity. Other notable features include a 360-degree-view camera, LED headlights, a remote tailgate release, and integrated loading ramps. New safety offerings include lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot detection. Powertrain choices include a 3.5-liter V6, 2.7 or 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engines, and a 5.0-liter V8. All are paired with a six-speed automatic. Our F-150 with the 3.5-liter V6 delivers abundant power, and even the 2.7-liter is no slouch. The cabin is very quiet, but the ride is a bit jittery.
